I just got back from teaching a friend to knit. To be fair, she was able to knit 30 years ago, so it was just a matter of remembering, so I don't really deserve much credit here. I did show her some of the sweaters I've made over the years to inspire her, even though we're actually working on squares for the Warm Up America project for her stepdaughter's Girl Scout project and 49 squares is going to take some time. But I wanted to open possibilities for her and inspire her to stick with knitting after the blanket is done.
Or I think I did.
The other possibility is that it would be easier to justify a room full of yarn if all of my friends ALSO had rooms full of yarn.....
Exactly when does "helping" end and "enabling" begin,,,,,,,?
